Have you seen someone using "really?" after a really obvious question?

For example;
Luck says (2:19 PM):
*Isn't she asian?
Erica says (2:19 PM):
*nope
Luck says (2:20 PM):
*really?
Erica says (2:20 PM):
*yup

Do you do it yourself? Do you get annoyed when people do it?

I try not to do it, since it does annoy me. My IRL friends do it a lot. It can get annoying even when it isn't an obvious question.

I get annoyed if someone asks it when it's really unneeded and after a painfully obvious statement. Usually when that happens, I turn the sarcasm/snark on full blast and reply with "Actually no, I completely lied and that's not the case at all" or something similar. XD;

I know I do the same thing to other people a lot when I'm expressing some disbelief (though usually substitute "seriously!?" for "really?"), so for the most part I'm patient with it or I don't even notice it.

No, I don't usually say it :/ If I do, it's usually for a joke or it's used in context with something like.. Oh I dunno:

"I ate a 2-foot long hot dog!"
"Woah. Was it really 2 feet? Exactly?"
"Nah, but it was just about that big!"

:/ I dunno.

I use it so many times in real-life that now I'm afraid that my friends are annoyed by it.

Usually, I would either say "seriously?", but that doesn't help much. I should really open the dictionary now...

Most of the time, I use it to "troll" people in real-life. XD Especially those whom I know are amusing when irritated. XD

Um, I try not to XD. It's sort of stupid and common, I'd rather say "Oh is that so?".

I say it sometimes.. but I stopped recently seeing the obviousness. Some of my friends do it sometimes, but it doesn't annoy me.

I don't really use. I take the person's word.

I don't care if it's said to me. They probably just need me to clarify. ;/

I use "for realz?" on the rare occasion that i use this device. I'm a very sarcastic person if you haven't noticed and, like donovannj said, I use it to troll people irl.

This is so annoying, I never do it, people I talk to always do it. I usually reply with something like "No, not really, I was lying" and then I get funny looks/apprehensive replies.

I don't really use it offline, yet online I do find myself typing it. I know it is sometimes redundant, but I still do it out of habit.

It is sometimes to express disbelief, or to mock the other person. "OH REALLY?" etc.

I do it all the time, and so do my friends. It's nothing to get worked up for. Just reply with the "yea" and your good to go. xD

Same as me, usually online if I ever say it, which I normally don't, ever. Offline, I never say anything like that.

I only do it when something really astonishing happens. For example...

Random: Did you know Billy got hit by a car!?
Me: Oh my god really!?

That's a really dumb example, but it's the simplest situation I can think of at the moment. Anyways, I don't mind when other people do it to me. Unless they say it when I'm talking about something that isn't astonishing or exciting at all.

My friend does that all the time. Drives me insane. What's unfortunate for me is that I think I'm starting to do the same thing. :o
